Normally the news of a pregnancy is kept quiet until 12 or 13 weeks have passed, but the Duchess of Cambridge’s severe morning sickness, or Hyperemesis Gravidarum, meant that the royal cat had to be let out of the bag earlier than usual. However, until now, the general public have been unaware when the new baby might make his or her entrance into the world.
However, now sources close to the Kate and William have said that Kate is approximately ten weeks pregnant; that would give the new baby a due date of April next year.
Even though these sources are positive that Prince George will get a new playmate in the form of a baby brother or sister in April 2015, there has not been any official confirmation of the Duchess of Cambridge’s due date.
A source said to be close to the Royal Family has said: “They are so excited that George will be getting a younger brother or sister next April and Kate’s just bravely fighting through this unwell stage under the guidance of palace doctors.”
Unfortunately, Kate’s Hyperemesis Gravidarum is so severe that she has been forced to cancel attendance at several events; the Duchess was unable to attend the Invictus Games and has had to cancel her forthcoming official visit to Malta with Prince William.
A spokesman for Clarence House made a statement confirming the Duke of Cambridge would travel alone: “The Duke of Cambridge is honoured to represent The Queen on the visit, which commemorates the 50th anniversary of Malta’s Independence.”
